At Creatures of the Wind A/W 2013, NARS Director of Global Artistry James Boehmer created a makeup look that complements the collection by adding a new element. “You see the pearl on their cheeks, and an angular line that almost makes the look hard and not so feminine, like a Teddy girl in the UK after World War II. I also wanted to balance Chris and Shane’s inspiration of artificiality, and candy, by creating a look that had a combination of matte and pearl but no real sense of contour, depth or color.” said James.
During my recent trip to Hong Kong, I attended a NARS Blogger Event at Lab Concept, Admiralty, in which NARS makeup artist Rebecca showed us how to rock a bright yet wearable makeup look using the latest Spring 2013 Collection. Thanks Jennifer and everyone at NARS Hong Kong for setting everything up
Yet another 20s inspired look emerged on the runway of Naeem Khan A/W 2013 collection. “The reference for the beauty look was Lady Mary from Downton Abbey. It’s a decadent 1920’s, lived in feel that’s all about the eyebrow. The skin we kept a natural finish to make the brows feel less costume-y”, said James Boehmer, NARS Director of Global Artistry.
François Nars, Founder & Creative Director of NARS Cosmetics, once again created the look for the Marc Jacobs A/W 2013 runway show. This time, the “eye is smokey, but round and defined, and we created really matte, perfect skin. It’s Joan Jett meets Marianne Faithfull meets punk rock.”
